Dr. Richards will take a series of dental impressions, molding material around your teeth, in order to plan your tooth movement sequence. Dr. Richards will show you the final product through a simulation on the computer that you can suggest changes prior to starting. Once the plan is approved, small white attachments will be placed on a few teeth and you will receive a series of clear trays that you will wear. From there, you will have small appointments throughout your treatment for adjustments and monitoring of tooth movement.
